Today is a Great Day. School was supposed to start again, but because of the “cold,” it was a snow day. I say “cold” because the low we -2 and the high is 12 today. To me, having grown up in Minnesota, it seems a little silly. Especially since when we left Minnesota yesterday morning it was -20.
We had a nice Christmas this year. Jeff’s sister and nephew came and stayed with us for a few days. There was a big snowstorm while they were here so we spent a lot of time inside watching TV and playing the wii. We went to Jeff’s mom’s house for a few hours on Christmas day, too. You would think that since we live nearby that we would see each other more often than we do, so it was really nice to spend time together.
We were in Minnesota for a really quick trip as well. We arrived at my parents’ house a few minutes after midnight on New Year’s. We spent New Year’s Day opening gifts and spending time with my family. The next day Jeff and I went out with friends for “brunch” and then my cousin Sara stopped by Saturday night and we got to catch up for a bit. We left early Sunday morning to head back to KC and we had an uneventful trip back.
I’ll leave you with a picture of one of Jeff’s gifts for me this year. It was really hard for him to spend money on a Vikings jersey, but he did it!
